Precautions on using options for your LM Guide

October 25, 2018

QZ is a lubricating device that is designed to feed a minimum amount of oil to the raceway.

  • Ensure a stroke that is longer than the overall LM block is secured, with QZ lubricator attached.
  • Do not drop or strike the product as it could cause injury or product damage.
  • QZ does not provide an anti-rust effect to the whole LM Guide. It is recommended that grease be applied to the mounting base of the LM guide and to the rail ends as an anti-rust measure. 
  • The service temperature of the device must be between -10℃ and +50℃. Contact DC Auto-Motion in advance to use the product out of the temperature range. 
  • Do not clean the product by immersing it in an organic solvent or white kerosene, or leave it unpacked.

Laminated Contact Scraper (LaCS), Side Scraper for LM Guides

  • Sliding capability is increased as lubricant is impregnated into the scraper. To lubricate the LM guide, attach QZ lubricator, or grease the nipple on the side face of the end plate of the LM block, before providing a lubricant. 
  • Attach the rail cap C or plate cover before using the product. 
  • The product’s service temperature must be between -20℃ and +80℃.
  • Do not clean the product by immersing it in an organic solvent or white kerosene, or leave it unpacked.
  • The product is designed to provide dust prevention to remove foreign material and liquid. To seal oil an end seal is required.

Light Contact Seal (LiCS) for LM Guides

  • For lubrication of the LM guide, attach the grease nipple on the end plate of the LM block before providing a lubricant. 
  • The product’s service temperature must be between -20℃ and +80℃.
  • Do not clean the product by immersing it in an organic solvent or white kerosene, or leave it unpacked.
  • Do not use the product in harsh environments. 

Cap GC

  • The LM rail mounting holes will be sharp if GC caps are specified for the product. Be careful not to injure your fingers or hands while working. 
  • When fitting GC caps, use a flat aligning tool to gradually punch the cap into the hole until it is level with the upper surface of the LM rail.
  • Run an oil stone over the rail until the upper surface of the rail and GC caps are completely flat.
